Hello friends! We are halfway through the countdown teasers for the August release from Clearly Besotted. For today’s card I thought I would do a little bit of watercolouring with my Ziggies and I am using the super cute Posy Plushies set. I have to say, this is one of my favourite sets as you have three floral images to chose from and you can have your animal sitting in the middle of them or even underneath. Today, I have a sweet little grey squirrel perched on the flower centre. So cute!
To begin, the squirrel and flower were stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink onto Strathmore Bristol Smooth cardstock. I added clear embossing powder and heat set. I used my Zigs to colour the images and then fussy cut them out. Next I took a butterfly from Anteater Antics, stamped and coloured that also. The colours I used are Violet, Lilac, Pale Green, Emerald Green, Light Brown, Gray Tint, Brick Beige and Mid Gray.
Next I took a white panel and die cut it with a SSS Stitched Rectangle and then temporarily positioned my images so I could work out where to stamp the greeting. The sentiment is from Says It All and this was stamped with Versafine Clair Nocturne ink.
The images were glued flat onto the white stitched panel and that was set to one side. I recently purchased the oh-so-pretty Sunny Studios Frilly Frames Lattice set and thought this would make a lovely backdrop to mat the image panel onto. So I die cut that and adhered my image panel down. You can simply write your message onto the back of the lattice panel.
That finishes today’s card. A lovely set and it can be used for so many occasions – that’s one of the great things about Clearly Besotted, their sets are very interchangeable and that makes for flexible cardmaking! I hope you have time to visit the Clearly Besotted blog and then onto Keren, Michelle and special guest Keeway. I am sure they would love to have you visit. Until tomorrow…happy crafting! xx
